Course Summary

Course overview:

Accounting and finance are central to managing organisations effectively. This course integrates accounting, leadership and change, and gives you a practical insight into developing the discipline. It also provides you with a firm knowledge of accounting and finance and the adaptability needed in a rapidly changing environment.

This course is distinctive in its focus on using financial skills in organisations rather than on mathematically modelling financial markets and in placing business accounting systems in the national and global business environment.You develop hard and soft accounting skills as well as the interpersonal skills necessary to work effectively in the challenging business environment. If you are a fully or part-qualified accountant, significant exemptions are available.

This programme is available with 100 credits of advanced standing to entrants who have obtained a full professional accounting qualification such as ACCA, CIMA and ICAEW. These students will only need to undertake two modules to complete the award - Current Issues in Accounting and Research, and the Accounting Dissertation.

Career opportunities:

Graduates can expect to be employed in areas within industry, accounting practices or the public sector. The degree provides a good stepping stone to training for a career in accountancy or a role in general management, and also provides those seeking positions in the finance industry with both specialist finance knowledge and the necessary level of understanding of accounting.

Modules

This module provides a theoretical and practical insight into a range of financial management techniques. It examines the means by which financial information is used to inform the effective management of an organisation, including decision making and control, performance management and, investment management. You also considers associated managerial behaviours and the relevance of issues such as risk management and environmental impact. You are assessed by a combination of a report and an examination.
